This game is great, but it has some flaws. It's still a lot of fun, and the combat is perfect. I also love Yaiba.

Like many Ninja Gaiden games, these kills wont easily be handed to you. You wont beat this game by senslessly mashing your lights and Heavies. You have to have solid execution and knowledge of your combos. When you're surrounded by your enemies, it feels so sweet landing your flail and executing a group of zombies to regenerate your health. You'll be given plenty of unique ways to overcome these obsticals too.

The story is funny and I love the characters. Everyone has a great personality and Yaiba is just a crazy ♥♥♥ ninja ready to destroy everything in his path to get to Ryu Hayabusa. You're just caught in the middle of a great biological mess while berserking toward revenge. I was never bored for a second.

The arcade mode will give you plenty of reason to come back to this game when you're finished with story mode. You'll be given the chance to fight for leaderboards, killing all the monsters you love, using the techniques you've learned from the story. What's not to love?

I'd like to point out that this game suffers from bad camera angles that can hide things from you from time to time, instant death points when you mess up a jump, which can be really frusterating at times, sometimes unforgiving checkpoints that can be annoying, but it's still a great game. These issues are only minor at times and are caused, usually, by poor execution from the player.

I give Yaiba Ninja Gaiden Z a 6/10. Great game play, replay value, and a fun story, but has a few issues that can make the game experience frusterating from time to time. I would not pay $60 for this title and I feel it suffered mainly because of it's original price.

P.S. For the love of god, release all of the Ninja Gaiden games on PC!

After I spent a few hours in this game I feel like I must protect this game, so I wrote this review:

Its a FiretrUCKING awesome game!!! I can understand the negative ratings by the "Ninja Gaiden" fans or those guys who wanted something else. Im a huge fan of the series, BUT I never had an xbox. Sooo im the fan of the original NES Ninja Gaidens. I didnt really liked the look of Hayabusas gimpsuit on xbox (on videos), not because its bad, just I like more Yaibas outfit and character (I used too much for the original "blue ninja") but here when i saw the blue ninja outfit :D I even (donno why feeling the same excitement like when i played on my NES... oh the memories :D ) And the jokes... I love this kinda jokes and fighting. I love the story and I love the gore and everything. I even like the camera angles.

There are too much pros in this game for me so I just write a few:

- Ninja Gaiden (NES) feeling
- Humor
- Gore
- Executions
- Comic like
- Ninjas
- Cyborg
- Cyborg Ninja
- and lots of more like well optimized, Ministry for trailer music, voices, atmosphere, etc.

I got only 3 problem with this game:

1, the end fight dont have checkpoints and you cant skip the "cinematic" parts, so if you make a mistake you need to start over the An act of Gonzo. (but with practice its not that hard, just long if you die)
2, same problem with the "2D" Ninja Gaiden Z adventure. If you run out of continues after the first stage kinda frustrating. I think it maybe would be better if you have an option to continue from the start of the stage, but then it could be too easy.
3, no cards and stuff for this game.

This game ♥♥♥♥ing sucks, but you know what sucks more? The fact this will probably sell like ♥♥♥♥ and we'll never get a good Ninja Gaiden game on Steam.

EDIT: I love you guys, too. Let's just say this, if you're looking for a bad God of War game, you've found it. Right down to the traversal QTEs. This game is shallow as ♥♥♥♥ in terms of combat. You've got nothing close to "depth" beyond using different elements to hard different types of zombies. You've seen everything the game has to offer within two hours max. The bosses are worse than DmC's. The counter is OP and makes the game way easier. The only two things the game has going for it are the art style and humor. The majority of the humor was already shown in the trailers. So yeah, if you wanna waste $60 or get your friend a joke gift, then this is the game you want.

i don't get why the bad reviews !
the game is really lots of fun and even funny too.

the game is an action/beat them up (Devil may Cry..etc) but with a sense of humor, the jokes might not be for everyone but they made laugh. the gameplay is really fun though the upgrades could be better, it isn't as deep as Ninja Gaiden or Devil may Cry in terms of combat but it is a lot of fun. the game ran perfectly fine at max settings at 60+ fps from start to finish.

P.S. the main menu's music is a killer, i can't stop listening to it

Obligatory header to the review: I focus on four primary areas whenever I review a game: gameplay, story, graphics, and sound/audio/general things that go into your earholes. Gameplay and Story get a rating scale from 1 to 10, and the AV stuff gets a rating from 1 to 5. My philosophy on this is that there are some instances in which a game may not necessarily have that much in the way of gameplay (take Amnesia for example), but the story/atmosphere/whatever it may be is reason enough to pick it up. Also, take the cumulative score with a grain of salt; it's just a numerical feeling about the game as a whole. That's part of why I do these subscores. Also, keep in mind that I'm not going off of school grade based rankings. A 5/10 denotes what I feel to be an average game. Likewise, 7/10 is a game that I think is pretty cool, and something that gets a 2/10 is near-abomination level. Pinning scores to an even further obfuscated rating scale is kinda senseless, but for the sake of my backloggery, I'll repeat again that 1.0-2.7 is a one-star game, 3.0-4.7 is a two-star game, 5.0-6.7, 7.0-8.7, and 9.0-10 are three, four, and five stars, respectively.

Gameplay: I really don't get the hate surrounding this game. Yeah, sure, it's not the same quality of game as the Itagaki-produced games, but it's still a load of fun. The gameplay is best described (in my opinion) as a cross between Devil May Cry and Rise of the Triad (actually, that's fair to say in more respects than just the gameplay). Rather than going with light attack/heavy attack/grab, the game has three different types of attack: shortsword for fast face fu- I mean wrecking; fists for punching things dead hard; and flails, which are essentially the Blades of Olympus. Along with that are some special weapons that you get from executing stronger enemies. These lead into the Element system of the game, which is really vital to grasp so that you don't launch your controller, chair, monitor, PC, and desk out the window. However, even more essential is learning how to counter.
Admittedly, countering is somewhat finicky, but I found it to be a godsend against the later bosses of the game. My biggest complaints, honestly, are the finicky countering and the camera, which can be a huge pain at times. However, those didn't really ruin my day all that much. After beating the game, you unlock Ninja Gaiden Z mode, which is essentially a "Yaiba-lite" version that plays more like a beat-em-up game like Streets of Rage than an actual classic Ninja Gaiden game. This was disappointing, admittedly, but it's still a good bit of fun. Also, no, I haven't beaten it. I'm not good enough to do about an hours worth of gameplay on one continue. But hey, this review isn't about my gaming abilities; it's about the game, and this game is simply fun. While it's not as engaging as Ninja Gaiden Black, I still think this game is a load of fun and will definitely play through it again on higher difficulties in the future. 8/10.

Story: The Ninja Gaiden series has never been well known for being the most well-written, and I think it's about time that they embrace their incredibly camp nature. Spark Entertainment felt the same way, too. The writing most definitely got plenty of laughs out of the 12 year old inside me. The Engrish in the Arcade mode was pretty great, too, even if it is a bit of an easy joke. Unlike gameplay, there really isn't much here to talk about. If you've got an immature sense of humor, you'll probably enjoy the cutscenes and dialogue. Just don't go into it expecting Shakespeare. 7/10.

Graphics: Definitely the most striking aspect of this game. It's got that ultra-cel shaded style in the ilk of games like Madworld, Killer7, and No More Heroes, and it looks pretty dang good when you crank the settings to max. It ran near-perfectly on my GTX 760 at 1080p, max settings, and 60FPS, so if you've got a similar card, you should have pretty similar results. As for the actual art design of the game itself, some of the areas get a bit boring to look at again and again, but if you're spending that much time looking at the scenery, you're not playing the game right. Now, don't think I made those comparisons earlier in this section without intent. This game, much like the prior three mentioned, is pretty dang violent. Absurdly so. However, this helps feed into the campy nature of this game, so I don't mind it at all. Again, this is more proof that art style trumps ultra-high polygon counts most any day of the week. Your eyes will most definitely not get bored, presuming you're actually playing the game. 5/5.

Audio: This game has a pretty rad soundtrack, I must say. The "hard encounter" theme is a bit meh, but there is some pretty good battle music throughout this game. They're songs you probably wouldn't mind working out to, if that helps give you an idea of the kinds of songs in the game. As for the voice acting, it doesn't get in the way. Nothing really that remarkable. Sound design, once again, doesn't really get in the way or make itself known all that much. For some pretty good songs, but not too remarkable anything else, the audio portion of this game gets a 3/5.

Overall: An absolutely gaudy adventure both in style and in substance that I overall had a pretty good time with. However, I'd hold off until this game becomes about $30 or so. Any higher is a bit too much in my opinion. 8/7/5/3; 7.7/10.
